CRS Italy Workshop 2022

7-9 October, 2022 - Genoa

Introduction and Theme

After two years of virtual-only meetings, the CRS Italia workshop in October 2022 will be a great opportunity to meet again, discuss science, and shape together the future of our society.

The theme of the 2022 CRS Italia Workshop is “Unmet Medical Needs: Opportunities and Challenges for Drug Delivery Scientists”. Clinical and pharmaceutical scientists, biotechnologists and bioengineers, cancer biologists and immunologists will present the most pressing medical needs in oncology, neurology, immunology, and metabolic disorders, and elaborate on recent nanobiotechnological developments to address them. The workshop will be articulated over 5 sessions, with 10 invited speakers and 8 selected speakers among the CRS Italy community, one poster session, and one full Sunday morning Young CRS Italy Scientist session. Multiple break sessions will facilitate interactions, and face-to-face discussions, and help launch new interdisciplinary collaborations. The Organizing and Scientific committees look forward to welcoming you all to Genova for a vibrant meeting with strong audience participation.
